Environmental History in New Zealand
At the New Zealand Historical Association Conference in Auckland in November 2005, the idea was mooted for a journal to be formed in order to link up people interested in topics relating to New Zealand and its environment. This includes people with interests in environmental history, landscape studies, literature and the environment, garden history, history of science, treaty history, and heritage issues.
